Technical Presentations
The technical sessions will be divided into key themes. Authors will present their papers in English to an audience in a lecture style format with some time for questions from the audience. Each presentation will run for 20-25 minutes which will be overseen by the Technical Committee. Those papers of high quality that cannot be presented due to the time constraints of the conference may be shown in a specific poster session adjacent to the exhibition area. The conference will focus on practical papers on the following themes:

• Blast Design Management
• Blast Vibration and Seismology
• Blasting Work Experiences
• Construction, Mining & Quarrying (Blasting)
• Demolition Blasting
• EU Directives & Harmonisation Work
• Explosive Detection for Security
• Health, Safety & Environment
• New Applications and Training
• Technical Development

The preliminary programme will be available when registration launches at the end of January.
